decision analysis

Quick Reference

A system of logic that uses elements of game theory and operational research to identify and quantify all available choices and their outcomes at each stage in designing a plan for preventive or therapeutic interventions. Each of the choices and probabilities of the outcomes of each choice can be visually presented in a decision tree. The relative value of each outcome can be expressed as a utility or quality-of-life measurement.
